REFLECTIVE

For this week's theme over at writteninc, Carmi has chosen REFLECTIVE.   Reflections, and being reflective, can often give us another view on life.   Or we can just enjoy watching the water, or ourselves in a mirror, or whatever!


I love watching water, and seeing how the light is broken up by disturbances, or the wind across a lake.



He's paddling like mad with his feet - breaking up the water round him into little bits of reflected light.


A lovely calm day by the lake in our park



Another park shot.   The purple bits are actually reflections of a Rhododendron bush above the water.   Somewhere in there is a coot's nest, but it is exceedingly well hidden!

Go over to the link above to see what reflective thoughts others have come up with!

Fantastic shots. The last one has a Matisse painting feel to it.

I love the bottoms-up shot! Very well caught, Gilly. And the other two photos are lovely - as fredamans says, the last one is very painterly.

Incredible shots, and of course you know my favorite has to be the bottoms up photo, just too cute! Excellent water shots too.

These are lovely photos. I like your analysis of the reflected light.

Dabbling duck is dabbling!

Very nice, Gilly.

P.S. Amelia typically carries her tail in an un-wolfhound like curl. But it will straighten out on occasion when she's focusing on something.

Bottoms up is obviously practising for synchronised swimming. Bodies of water provide ideal opportunities for reflective shots.

Love your first one with the tail in perfect gymnastic position...

Bottoms up! I love the rippling water shots you've captured here.
